History[edit]

The 403rd Solahma Battle Cluster was one of the most ineffective units in the Coyote touman until Tam McTighe took command in the late 3050s. Since then the unit became one of the most skilled in their Galaxy.[1] They were stationed on Tamaron between 3060 and 3067.[2][3]

In August 3073 the 403rd along with the rest of Rho Galaxy as well as Delta and Epsilon Galaxies assaultrd in the Vinton system. The fighting was long and brutal, but by March 3074 the Coyotes had won the war of attrition and captured every major city.[4]

In December 3074 the Steel Vipers launched a massive assault on against Clan Coyote on Tamaron with six Galaxies and a large naval force. The 403rd and Rho Galaxy were part of the Coyote defending force. The Vipers quickly captured their objectives, several major factory complexes in the Apache Mountains, then moved against the Coyote capital city of San Mateo. By 16th December the Vipers had the city surrounded and most of Rho including the 403rd had been destroyed. [5]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 to 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Tam McTighe.[1]

Tactics[edit]

The warriors of the cluster rarely followed Zellbrigen.
